    French Destroyers Branch Review

    You can't play them as a regular DD. I was having issues with Jaguar and then my clan mate suggested "play as a cruiser". I've done much better since then. I also have the Vauquelin. Being up-tiered a lot. Still doing ok but now you are facing many other DDs that have large HP pool and lots of guns and lots of good higher tier cruisers with insane DPM that can ruin your day. Requires more opportunistic play because you still have the same speed and shell velocity as the lower tier. The only thing you have in your favor is slightly more HP and 15 second reload booster. Falls a little short

    Continuous AA DPS Explained

    @LittleWhiteMouse. What an outstanding work. And BTW as a fellow Canadian ive never thanked you before for everything you did to get Haida included in game. THANK YOU What bothers me most in this all is not per say the strange AA gun load8ng mechanics resulting in unnecessary inconsistencies What truly bothers me is that in game interface doesnt include the reload parameter which is neccesary to determine how good or bad your ship AA is

    Clan Battles: "Land of Fire" Season

    I hope this will be the last CB season with this format. Becoming little stale. I hope the next CB season after WG is done with CV balancing and working out the kinks will allow CV. When that occurs, I hope they consider adding CV as the 8th ship. No more than 1 and can be replaced with other class except BB (Think that 2 BBs in a team or 8 is still too much) And then perhaps turn CB into 9 v 9 with same format as KOTS. Clan Battles will then become training ground for clans who want to expand into higher competitive game play

    I'm actually really liking this Ranked Season

    I like it too. I'm at R10. Tried Yugumo, Fletcher, Missouri and Buffalo. Yugumo turning out better than I expected.

    CV so OP now

    For sure. Lots of balancing will occur over the next 6 months. In my opinion they rushed the release too much. But I still agree with the concept of controlling single group of aircraft over the RTS style before.

    CV so OP now

    Why are people jumping to conclusions so fast. I played one game in CV last night. Was lost, but so what. It sparked my interest and I will continue dabble in it. Also played handful of games in random. Having CV in every game now means just another layer. As cruiser I definatly had to pay attention to the planes. Overall I see two types of comments. CV are OP now and CV are so weak now. The truth is somwhere in between

  10. Second that, one duplicate too many prevented my from getting the North Cape collection
  11. Thank you all for good input and replies. The consensus appears to be that the MM is the same and the reason for my demise with WR is either because a)My frustration is affecting the quality of my gameplay. b) CB season means more division play and I am to unlucky ending up with the wrong teammates To rectify my situation is to a) play at different times b) stop grinding during this holiday season and only play the ships that I already know , c) play more in division myself Thank you all and merry Christmas!
  12. If MM is truly random, then solo Win rate would be KPI (key performance indicator). Good team players carry more and thus influence the game more and thus have higher WR If find focusing on damage is selfish. A player who focus on damage rather than the game objective often causes his team to lose and thus less XP and credit earnings for his teammates
  13. Hi Guys, Didn't think I would write this post but I've become so frustrated with the game since 0.7.11. Of course it could all be a coincidence but I still need to to get out my frustration as well as find out if there is a possibility that something changed with matchmaking algorithm as of 0.7.11 I'm an average+ player Played 4000+ games for 3 years. My early past sins kept my winrate low but as of about 1 year ago, I finally started to understand game mechanics and became map aware. Throughout last year my win rate started creeping upward and last 9 month my average monthly winrate was in the high 50's (~57-58%). And this allowed my overall winrate in Random to finally break 52%. I broke 52% just before 0.7.11 hit and then everything fell apart For the last 21 days and 103 battles, my winrate is 38%. Night after night after night I lose more than I win. Some nights are brutal as in 0 win in 9 or 10 games. I'm not playing any differently. I'm still killing ships. I'm still challenging caps and I'm still creating damage, I'm still reading the enemy moves correctly. it is just that my team melts away. Either right from the get go or it throws the game and lately I have seen too many times 8 ships occupying 4 squares on a map and giving the enemy map control. This happens in tier 8 and tier 9 and even tier 10 gameplay (^*(&()&*(*)&%$^#^% Ok after all the ramble...... :( here are some questions to my fellow captains. Do you know if Matchmaking algorithm takes into account player strength when putting together teams. Is it possible that because I broke briefly the 52%win rate that MM puts me now in higher category with more weaker players. Basically I'm now expected to carry the team. Basically I'm not good enough for my current rating so I deserve to be taken down a notch Do you know if Matchmaking algorithm changed as of 0.7.11 Do I just need a break I am personally leaning towards 4. I have probably spent too much money on this game. Was planning to spend more this Christmas ..... But I'm just not having any fun playing anymore except Clan Battles . Tired of being the last man standing on the losing side night after night. I think I need a new game and put my time and money elsewhere for awhile

    Is Kagero a step backwards from Akatsuki?

    Kagero works for me. Yes, initially after leaving Akatsuki I struggled but now I have very good games in her. My winrate is great. I can influence games a lot. Talking use of her concealment is the most important thing. Spot spot and spot for you team and contest caps but stay silent. When you help out your BBs and cruisers to shoot on target they will in return help you when enemy gun boat rushes you
